H&M, Primark, New Look, Zara Haul Goodies

A pretty standard thing for me to do on a day off when I have no plans is to go shopping, of course! Days off are expensive… BUT once again, I am convincing myself that it was all justified and that I picked up some good stuff that’ll get lots of wear!

Let’s start with Primark.

 I tend to avoid Primark shoes as I have a perception of them not being the most comfortable or most well made, but I do like to have a look at what they have in there. I saw these two beauties, tried them on and just couldn’t leave them behind. They both fit me really well actually and weren’t uncomfortable! They’re such nice designs and so cheap that is doesn’t really matter if they don’t last years. The lace ups are very very similar to the lovely Office multi straps. I’ve seen the New Look take on them kicking about the internet, and tried them on in store and as with all New Look shoes, I found them horribly uncomfortable, New Look shoes just do not fit me – 5’s are a bit too small, 6’s too big! And besides I really dislike the gold detailing they decided to put on them. Primark wins!

Lovely little bag, it’s a good size, fits my tablet in there too! A cream and black bag like this will just go with everything. Primark’s bags impress me a lot.

Exciting purchase here! And that’s genuine. I love these! I do get a bit excited about being able to organise and store things in pretty ways. Storage is fun. Primark are the cheapest place I’ve found to buy non-slip hangers like this, I can’t remember the exact price but they were under £3 on sale for 10 of them. Bargain.

Onto H&M, they have some great stuff in!

I’ve had my eye on these for a while, so finally bought them. I really wanted some block heels as they really are so much more comfortable and still look great. Comfort is much more of a priority for me these days! No more silly stilettos. I love these, try them on and you’ll see why. Legs look great AND you can walk in them AND wear them longer than a hour?! Miracle.

I LOVE these shorts, they are so cute! This picture nor the website do them justice, they are so lovely on and are so soft. When the weather warms up hopefully I can include them in an outfit post as they look so great on. I could only find them in the store in a size smaller than I would normally get, but they fit perfectly, so that’s always a great feeling! 😉 And only £7.99, I couldn’t believe it. They go so nicely with all the tops I got too.

This top is part of the H&M conscious range which uses some recycled materials which is pretty cool. As you can probably tell, it’s the kind of top you’ll have to iron a lot as it’s crease prone, but I just really like the colour and fit, it’s something you can tuck into things as well as over the top of jeans etc. So chic.

This is so nice, it’s long at the back and is just a lovely fit; flowy but flattering. I’ve been wearing it over the top of a long sleeve white top while it’s still a bit chilly. I love it. I’m sensing a nude, beige theme going on with me here!

Onto New Look

I was so happy with New Look for this one! I’d seen basically the same top in Topshop (River Island had one too, here), and had half decided I was going to buy it, but I thought I’d check New Look first in the hope they had one similar, and they did! And with their cheaper prices I saved over a tenner, very glad I bothered to look for it.

Lastly, a perfume from Zara

I think Zara’s perfume range is great, some lovely ones there and they’re so affordable. To be truthful, I’m kind of wishing I’d got a different one to this Oriental one, I like it but just not love… I was trying to be grown up and get something not so sweet as usual, but they’re what I like so I wish I’d just stayed true to that and got the Green Apple one I truly wanted! Ah well, they’re £9.99, so I haven’t broken the bank, it will get used up.

Happy Easter,
Nicole
